Wolfgang Marquardt, RWTH Aachen University; Prof. James Rawlings, University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Prof. George Stephanopoulos, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Chairman).

Areas of focus for the AspenTech Academy include: new research-based discoveries and technology developments in chemical engineering fundamentals; process optimization; process development, design and engineering; process operations monitoring, diagnosis, planning, scheduling and control; and new computing environments for collaborative workflow in distributed settings of mobile- and cloud-based computing.
